Office Based Surgery Complications

If you see a patient with a complication of Office Based Surgery, there is a provider obligation to report it in NYS. Please call Risk management for assistance in getting it reported as there is a one business day time frame. Below is a key excerpt from the FAQ.

Any physician, physician assistant or specialist assistant in a hospital setting who believes that a patient complaint, complication, condition, emergency room visit, hospital admission or death is related to an OBS procedure must report an OBS adverse event as soon as they suspect that there is some relationship to an OBS surgical procedure . In such a case, the reporter may not be able to complete the form in its entirety, but should submit as much information as possible.
